Quentin Tarantino wasn't a household name in 1988, but he was an Elvis impersonator. That year, the soon-to-be auteur made a cameo appearance on an episode of The Golden Girls as one of several "Elvii" attending Sophia's wedding. You can catch a glimpse of him above (action starts at around 4:30), though you'll have to look carefully -- back row, dead center.
Here's how Tarantino described the appearance in a 1994 interview with Playboy:
Well, it was kind of a high point because it was one of the few times that I actually got hired for a job. I was one of 12 Elvis impersonators, really just a glorified extra. For some reason they had us sing Don Ho's Hawaiian Love Chant. All the other Elvis impersonators wore Vegas-style jumpsuits. But I wore my own clothes,because I was, like, the Sun Records Elvis. I was the hillbilly cat Elvis. I was the real Elvis; everyone else was Elvis after he sold out.
Having honed his chops alongside the greats -- Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, Estelle Getty and of course, Betty White -- Tarantino has racked up over 30 acting credits on IMDb. Here are some of our favorite moments of Quentin in front of the camera.
